Hi from Portugal

Hello everybody,

I'm MOTS from Portugal (between Spain and Atlantic Ocean) and I'm new on this issue.

My goal is to buy an inflatable boat and I found this forum that I hope could help me on my decision.

many thanks in advance to you all

Welcome to Ribnet. We’ve just had 3 weeks in your beautiful country, you’re very lucky. Where are you planning to use the boat, in the river mouths, on the ocean? Are you looking for a RIB or SIB. The Atlantic can be a challenge & we noticed that the locals tended not to venture out of the river mouth. We were the only people out on the ocean most days, in fact the Maritime Police came out from Porto to see what we were up to.

Yup, Porto was a treat. The Marina Douro was excellent, the staff couldn’t be more helpful. We went to Aviero from there, stunning

Hi, many thanks for your response.

The boat is mainly to be used on Sado Bay near Setúbal, and also in some lake weirs we have in Portugal, namely Alqueva.
I'm looking for a SIB due to the transport facility, especially a boat with Air Deck.
I'm seeing what the market offers in Portugal and Spain and later I'll post here in the fórum something asking for opinions
